small business accountant

As a small business owner, I have a certain set of skills that have been honed to a razor’s edge over years of practice. Finance is categorically NOT among those skills. We began our business with an accountant who ignored us until tax time, only to hit us with a staggering bill.

Lance CPA Group never let on that my questions are often incredibly dumb, are unfazed reconciling the purchase of a 7- foot suit of armor, and have taken a massive chunk of workload and stress off my mind/shoulders as our business has exponentially expanded.

I no longer live in fear of making a costly finance mistake, because to borrow a slogan, we’re in good hands with them. Not that there’s been any touching. They’re quite professional, but not remotely stuffy. Otherwise I imagine we would have scared them off by now.

The team at Lance CPA has been a tremendous asset to Tacklebox. Not only are they complete experts in the world of tax, accounting – and business in general – but they’re super responsive, quick and friendly. We love their combination of technology and intelligence; both have allowed us to be a better, smarter, more-efficient company.

We began working with Josh and his team right around the time he launched Lance CPA Group.  We were a newly formed startup as well, and the fact that he catered to small businesses made the relationship a no-brainer.  We’ve worked together for 3 1/2 years now and continue to receive the same expert advice and personal attention we have since day one.

We are so thankful that we have been working with Lance CPA Group over the last few years.  We no longer have to worry about paying sales tax, inventory accounting, and keeping the books clean.  All of the accounting ‘stuff’ took us hours a week and didn’t allow us to focus on revenue generating activities.  Last year we were able to scale up big time and grow our business bottom line over 300%.  Lance CPA Group is an integral part of our team.  Thank you!

craft brewery accountant

As a small start-up brewery with only owner-operators, any help we can get for quick decision-making and long-term strategies, as well as bookkeeping support, is huge. Lance CPA Group has been a great help in making it easy for us to stay nimble, budget-conscious, and effective in our accounting.
